Cinema’s most iconic heroin addicts are back on our screens for the latest Popcorn Muncher Podcast, hosted by Patrick Wilson with Luke Stevenson and Tom Beasley – editor of The Popcorn Muncher.

Tom reviews Danny Boyle‘s return to Edinburgh for T2 Trainspotting and discusses whether the boys’ big return has the potential to define a generation in the way that its predecessor did. There are also reviews of two big Best Picture contenders, in the shape of Mel Gibson‘s brutal war movie Hacksaw Ridge and the saccharine weepie drama Lion, starring Dev Patel.

In the news section, we discuss Ben Affleck‘s departure from the director’s chair of The Batman and take a glance over the latest awards season results, including the SAG and PGA Awards. Meanwhile, in the quiz, an animated movie that will be very familiar to regular listeners finally gets its time in the spotlight.
